Description
Welcome to Turtle Bay Newcastle! Jerk...Rum...Reggae... Caribbean eating and drinking... is at the heart and soul of the Caribbean Island culture and we, here at Turtle Bay, aim to capture the essence of this way of life and the great food that evolves here. We are a Caribbean restaurant serving authentic great tasting Caribbean style food from Aruba to Saint Lucia. You will also taste our fantastic rum based cocktails and experience friendly service which we hope leaves customers wanting to come back to our bay again and again. Our beach bar and street food dining brings the Caribbean Tropics to Newcastle. Turtle Bay is the perfect stop off after a hard day of shopping, before a big night out or to relax all day with some Caribbean cocktails. Cocktails are 2-4-1 Sunday to Thursday 11:30am-7pm and again from 9:30pm 'til close, and Friday to Saturday 11:30am-7pm and again from 10pm 'til close.
